The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
We wanted to share a big update on our end-of-year fundraising campaign. Our team crunched the numbers this morning, and we’re only $7,812 away from reaching our $50,000 goal to unlock our 2X matching offer!
unlocking this match is an opportunity we cannot let pass us by. Over 20,000 wild horses and burros are set to be rounded up by the federal government next year, and we need all the support we can get to ensure we’re able to step up for these animals – whether that’s in the fields, in the courts, or on CapitolHill.
– Team AWHC
Help us unlock a 2X match!
Can you help us unlock a 2X matching gift to help us continue our critical work saving wild horses and burros in 2024? We need to raise $50,000 before Friday at midnight to unlock this match.
Over the last few days, we’ve reflected on some incredible victories we’ve secured this year for our wild herds. But at the heart of all of these success stories is one key ingredient: you.
Folks like you are the driving force behind our work to fight for our wild herds. When we raise awareness about what’s happening to wild horses and burros and mobilize the many thousands of people who want these incredible animals protected, we are able to move mountains.
For example, our campaign to raise awareness about the pointless and cruel nature of the McCullough Peaks wild horse removal generated over 200,000 emails to key officials and touched more than 2 million members of the public. This public outcry put pressure on the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and contributed to the agency’s decision to reduce the number of horses it plans to remove.
In North Dakota, our billboard and ad campaign to save the historic wild horse population who inhabit the popular Theodore Roosevelt National Park generated intense public opposition to a federal plan to eliminate the horses. This public outcry fueled opposition from the state’s political leadership and has created intense pressure to preserve these historic horses.
And across the country, AWHC’s advertising and media campaigns raised public awareness of the cruelty of helicopter roundups. From our billboards in New York City’s Times Square to the compelling images and videos that our field observers have collected, our efforts have brought national attention to the issue of wild horse conservation.
We know that when people hear about what’s happening to wild horses and burros, they are outraged. It’s our job to continue building public awareness and the grassroots army necessary to rise up and advocate for the protection of America’s mustangs and burros – but this work wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of folks like you.
Your contributions enable us to continue shining a light on what’s happening to our wild herds, and we’re incredibly grateful to count you as one of our supporters. As we gear up to continue this important work in 2024, will you chip in to our end-of-year goal to fuel our awareness efforts next year? We still have one day left to raise $50,000 so we can unlock a massive 2X matching offer from one of our generous donors, and we need the help of everyone reading this to reach it! >>
